A favorite of the locals, this offers good food and drinks and spectacular views down the gorge. Sit on the deck in good weather and enjoy. Also a great place to watch sporting events on tv.

We have been told by a lot of people this is the best place to eat in Blowing Rock. We have been twice and we're not impressed. The service was fair as well as the food. I would not recommend this place to eat.

Arrived at 11:45am. Waited 30 minutes to be seated at a small crowded table. Once seated, drink and food order taken. View is pretty but that is all the restaurant has going for it. If you want a view stop off at a scenic overlook...More

We stopped for lunch to get out of the wind and enjoy the view. The food was very good and the view was better. Our waitress was very good and took good care of us. The fresh chips were very good.
